Bio

Hello! My name is Garrett and I am a recent graduate from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Motion Pictures and a minor in Music Composition.

Hello! My name is Garrett and I am a recent graduate from Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Motion Pictures and a minor in Music Composition.

I strongly believe that the best part about learning is getting the opportunity to share that knowledge, and tutoring is a fantastic way to do that! It is always a unique challenge finding interesting and engaging ways to teach different subjects, but that is what has kept me in the tutoring game for so long.

Math has always been my strongest (and favorite) subject. In middle school and high school I even went so far as to compete in math competitions. Yes, I was a full-blown mathlete. In addition to this, I took the highest level of math offered and excelled in all of them. I achieved the highest score achievable on the Texas AP BC Calculus test, allowing me to skip all my required college math classes (though I still took some for the fun of it). I also achieved a perfect score on the math portion of the ACT. At Belmont, I would have math majors coming to me for help with their calculus homework, which was ultimately the icing on the tutoring cake!

I have been involved in music for over a decade. I started out on the piano when I was about eight and started playing violin when I was ten. In high school I switched from violin to viola and started taking my music education very seriously. I took classes at the El Paso Conservatory of Music where I learned theory, sight singing, and performance as well as continuing my music lessons on piano and viola. It is also where I discovered my love for composition, a love that continues to this day.

There is so much more to my educational journey that I can't fit into this profile, so if you are curious or have any questions don't hesitate to reach out! I have a lot of experience working with all different ages in a variety of subjects and can't wait to get to share my knowledge!

Helps both kids

Garrett has been working with my son (age 10) with his reading and writing skills preparing him for 4th grade. My son always looks forward to seeing Garrett. My daughter (age 14) is starting high school and she is working with Garrett to help her prepare for Geometry class. It's great that Garrett has this positive effect on my kids who look forward to learn with him. Thanks, Garrett!!
